The time between a stressful situation and your response-that is the pause. Learning to pause, like any skill, takes practice. But by learning to use this pause to help you think through a situation, you can gain an invaluable tool to help you manage your feelings more effectively.

learning that through tough situations, just taking a moment to pause is very beneficial. i will be taking this into consideration. i know that i can get upset quite easily, but if i just take a minute to assess the situation, i can prevent much more negativity that may foster.
Thinking/ walking away from a negative situation to think it through could really help.

I love the idea of pausing before responding. It’s a skill I desperately need to learn.
